Kareem Rizk




Rizk is a master of collage. His use of vintage advertising with text and color is interesting and always very beautiful. I love the use of type in art-- bold shapes that are graphic and interesting in themselves, and that can add another level of "message." From the materials for his current on-line exhibit at Phone Booth Gallery in California: "In a way, the recycling of images and paper in the collage work is a reflection of the recycling process which occurs in every arbitrary facet of modern society - the recycling of lifestyle choices, self image, fashion, entertainments, technology and especially the educational system and curriculum." Rizk's prints are very reasonable ($25 or less) and are available through his site, his etsy shop, and BlueFlip art.
